Wednesday, March 27: Holi (Sikh, Hindu)

Holi (Sikh, Hindu)
According to myth, a tyrannical king's son, Pralad, refused to worship his father as God and was condemned to death by burning. However, the boy's aunt, named Holika, transferred her own immunity from fire to Prahlad, and burned to death in his place. This festival of colour celebrates Spring, where people play with liquid and powdered colours, light bonfires and blow horns to celebrate the destruction of Holika.On this dayCalendar imageSnyder Thorn Diversity Calendar #today
